is in washington with details. >> reporter: one thing the president is not doing is he's not calling for a complete overhaul of our national security system. but he does say it needs some fine tuning and he's telling people within the intel against community to do a better job. umar farouk abdulmutallab faces a six count indictment. the 23-year-old nigerian is accused of attempting to use a mass deprugs instruction, trying to destroy an aircraft and attempting to murder 289 individuals. no one was seriously hurt in the botched christmas day attack, but the very fact that abdulmutallab was even on a u.s. plane has sparked a massive review of the nation's security. >> when the system fails, it is my responsibility. >> reporter: president obama says the buck stops with him. but he's also demanding that the intelligence community do a better job. security agencies must now establish clear lines of responsibility for following leads and sharing information. and he's ordered improvements in the system for putting people on no-fly lists. >> we must follow the leads that we get. and we must pursue them unt
. "washington journal " is next. . >> sprawling national apparatus failing to in i kate a single terrorist that fell through the cracks. 8 years after 9/11 and the architecture that was supposed to improve sharing and acting on information. the u.s. is better at collecting intelligence but as thursday's report shows. nowhere good enough. intelligence agencies had information sufficient to discover the plot that failed put it all together. the "washington post" goes on to say this lack of clear lines is disturbing in any business. it's in excusable when national security is involved. that the president of the united states should tell the cia to issue guidance of the timely distribution of intelligence reports is unsettling to put it mindly. it's mind-boggling the president felt the need to instruct the director of national intelligence to take further steps to raise the standard of trade craft analysis especially analysis designed to uncover terrorists plots either this is boilerplate or the country is in a world of trouble. that's "washington post" this morning. here's the "wall street jo
. there a continuing debate here in washington about what to do and whether to do anything. >> yeah. so i know you all have had on the show carmen reinhart and ken rogoff who has written a book about the history of financial crises and it shows on average unemployment rises for four to five years after a financial crisis. that would take us to 2011 or 2012. the reason people think it will not raise for that long is, in fact, this aggressive response, this big stimulus package, the federal reserve move. nd so there is wide agreement, not unanimous but wide agreement that government policy has helped soften the downturn. the problem is at this point we're not going to get another huge stimulus package. we probably shouldn't get another huge stimulus package given the deficit fears that a lot of people have. so the responses the government will have at this point are muted. >> reporter: the president today had a targeted green job. >> the targeted green jobs which really isn't that big, right. we're talking about at most i think he said tens of thousands of jobs. and that is relative to what we've got in
. there is no word what day he will leave washington but the party is 11:00 in the morning to 3:00 p.m. in the afternoon on the 30th. >>> coming up, icy roads lead to a ridiculous, 27-car pileup in atlanta. >>> the recession may be behind us, but the latest news from the labor front shows we are suffering the after shock. we'll be right back. >>> stocks end the week higher. the dow finished the day up 11 points to close at 10618. when it comes to unemployment, good news and bad news. let's start with the positive, shall we? a revised unemployment report for november shows the economy actually added 4,000 jobs that month, and that would be the first gain in nearly two years. on the other hand, employers cut 85,000 jobs in december, and overall the unemployment rate is stuck at 10%. many of the jobs people are finding these days, temp jobs and experts say it is still an uncertain economy and it makes sense. >> finding a temp, putting that temp in place and seeing how he or she performs is, in itself, a good bang for their buck. >> today, president obama outlined a series of tax credits
and east southeast of washington. quite a bit of sunshine shenandoah valley through the rest of virginia. all this associated with some cold, dry air that is continuing to me in from the midwest, the area of low pressure that gave us the snow this morning is now moving off to our north and east. as we go forward over the next 48 hours, we'll see that low pressure exiting and high pressure build in from the midwest, will bring in another surge of frigid, arctic air that is going to be moving in and it will be in place for the weekend, but it should be dry. so, here's how we're looking for the rest of this friday. we'll have those blustery, cold-cutting winds out of the northwest, gusting 30 to 35 miles an hour, with some clouds racing through from time to time and highs only reaching near the freezing mark. then overnight tonight, back down into the mid-20s by midevening and then the teens tomorrow morning. and the winds will diminish tomorrow, thankfully, because highs only in the upper 20s tomorrow. we'll have a few clouds around then. lots of sun on sunday. a clear and coldtart sunday

, building within the afghan community, i'd like to mention, there was an interesting "washington post" op-ed piece back in mid november, glen hubbard, the dean of columbia's business school, was reflecting on the funding for pakistan and i assume it has the same thing to do also with pakistan, in terms of models of delivery of programs to support successful economic development. and he harkened back to the successful model of the marshal plan, not suggesting to do a marshal plan per se, but rather to look at the model of how things could be altered and delivered for truly sustainable economic development. how are your plans moving and are they moving in that direction? >> you know what? on my trips to pakistan, i always tried to meet a society and the crit s. of the way we gave fine assistance in pakistan was really harsh. i am particularly in your field, education, they felt they hadn't been consulted but at the higher education and the secondary education level and i talked to some extraordinary, brilliant, pakistani leaders, both in the ngo world and the ministries about this, and we s
on the strategic level and in washington and we need to do a lot better than we have in the past. the final comment that will make is-- which is the arab-israeli conflict. deese to be any kind of talk of this sort would focus elise the fair degree of time would be focused on the arab-israeli conflict. i understand this is an area where the state department has the lead, but clearly in the past this is something which the d.o.t. did devote a fair amount of time in sticking to, but it is clear now with two plus wars further east and in dealing with the issue of iran and iran's the clear program the arab-israeli conflict does not loom as large in the mind of some other policymakers as it used to and it reminds me of a comment made by james wolfensohn after you left his job as represented in an interview with the israeli paper where he stated and i quote, there has to be a moment when the israelis and palestinians understand there a side show. the real global politics and the politics of four in the politics of nuclear weaponry and the weight of the population. i think that is the point that was furthe
to have a very undisciplined approach coming out of washington with regard to fiscal policy. with no road map back to sustainable fiscal balances over the intermediate term causing fears in the markets like you see somewhat today in terms of gold, in terms of the dollar, in terms of long treasuries. secondly, you could have a geopolitical event that would restrict world oil supplies with the issues going on in iran today. i would put the probability of both of those events as being relatively low and wouldn't expect those to happen but those would be the two primary risks that i wouldy. >> all right, gentlemen, great conversation. appreciate it. see you soon. thanks very much. thank you so much. take a look at some of the other business headlines that we're covering this afternoon and kick it off with white house press secretary robert gibbs telling reporters today that president obama still has confidence in treasury secretary timothy geithner. this is as house oversight committee towns says whether the fed improperly influenced aig to hold details from the public about houtfederal bailo

decision was being made back in washington by the nctc as to whether or not this suspect really was a terrorist. he was decided to be a potential terrorist, but not a terrorist. so i guess the bottom line here is, number one, we're getting information that we did not have before, and it really does c contradict information we were getting from the state department. and apparently the state department never really did follow up on this issue of the visa until it was very, very late, and that looks like they really dropped the ball on that, john. >> as the president said today, a lot of balls were dropped in this whole case. jill for us in washington. jill, thanks. we're just now getting a look at the surveillance video at the man who caused that massive security nightmare sunday at newark international airport. >> after the man walked the wrong way through a security passageway, officials had to shut down one terminal for hours and then rescreen thousands of passengers, and they never found the guy. susan joins us now live with more. i saw you, actually, in the newsroom. everybod

'm with the "washington quarterly" at cis. every since obama has come into office and his speech on november 1 about the troop surge, comparisons have been drawn with vietnam. though we heard the comparison with the soviet invasion, i was just wondering what all of your views were on vietnam, and whether they are comparable or what ways they may not be? >> wow. i think we'll defer to frank who was old enough -- [laughter] >> to do that. but, you know, in a sense, the war in vietnam was fought against. we withdrew because of domestic reasons. not so much what happened in vietnam. the soviets also the same thing. they did not lose a single encounter to the afghan jihad while they were there for almost ten years. major encounter. in vietnam, we didn't really lose any major encounter to the north vietnamese. the war will be fought within washington. we're fighting two wars. you have to really look at both of them together. >> there's a -- i think there's a very important disof text between vietnam and afghanistan. vietnam was bipolar. you know, the country was either inform support of what had been the
